Staff at Manor Farm Care Home have taken the “Oral Care” pledge

There is growing evidence that poor oral hygiene and periodontal (gum) disease is playing a role in the development of some forms of dementia.

Evidence shows that individuals who have their teeth cleaned regularly and thoroughly have significant improvements in their general health and wellbeing.

Home Manager Isabel Nyirenda said “overall, we have a duty of care to ensure that these vulnerable members of society have clean, pain-free, healthy mouths, that is why we have set up The Manor Smile Project”
